FICM voltages during driving

So today I was driving and watching the dashboss particularly the FICM Voltage, and I noticed that it would fluctuate from 46-48 volts, should I go ahead and have one on standby in the event that this one crashes or should I be okay with this voltage?

I have new batteries and a new alternator so the input voltage isnt a factor. I have dealt with for some time now a slight "miss" during cold running conditions which only lasts about 4-6 miles.

Stiction or FICM, would FICM replacement or repair, fix the slight miss on cold starts?

Any thoughts or suggestions...

Have you upgraded your batteries cables and cleaned your grounds down to bare metal?

I did not replace or upgrade the cables as the ones on there are in good shape, I did clean the grounds with wire brush. I am reading good input voltage 12.5 with switch off, and I think its around 15 when running. The only fluctuation I see is the FICM output voltage and it is constantly moving around between 46-48 volts.
